I can talk only about Squid on Solaris. As Squid is still more or less
except for aio and the helper processes (dnsservers foremost), I never found
the need for more than two CPUs. A third was almost always idle, even when
"blasted" (a simulation of clients and servers via the squid being blasted)
laboratory environment, and even when fiddling with autoup.
